She definately is very brave. There was an attack several years ago in the US by a tiger shark on a young female surfer. The shark tore of her arm. Believe it or not she still surfs. She was on Oprah Winfrey and she was incredible; so brave. I don't think I would be that brave. I suppose it is amazing what you will do to survive though.
I remember the movie The Beach that Leonardo DiCaprio was in it, and he was fighting off the shark. Then he came out of the ocean alive plus not a single piece of him getting ripped off. I was watching it and I was like, "yeah sure, you got attacked by a shark and you're still in whole. Give me a frigging break. What is his body built of? Metal?"
And I have to say most of the cases, most, the shark's victims will be alive after the attack. They mostly die because of losing blood, not because they are completely eaten. Right?
I think it depends on the shark. In the 90's in Australia a couple got married and went on their honeymoon in Queensland. They were divers so they went diving with a school of mullet. The husband pushed the wife out of the way and was totally munched by a great white (they reckon this shark was the size of a small truck). All that was left of the husband was his torso. The wife had to bring it back and bury it at the same church they had been married in the week before. That always stuck with me. However, i know that in most cases people do bleed to death.
